DARPA ReVector prevents pathogens from entering human body by modifying Skin Microbiome throgh synthetic biology

The mosquito is the deadliest animal on the planet, responsible for spreading malaria, which kills more than 400,000 people every year. The American Society for Microbiology estimates that there are trillions of microbes living in or on the human body that constitute the human microbiome.   The human skin microbiome …

Continuous Manufacturing technology for “pharmacy on demand,”

The manufacturing of pharmaceuticals has lagged behind the research and development of new therapeutics. The same batch processes that were used over a century ago are still being used today, while other industries have moved forward with automated and continuous operations (eg, fine chemical, oil, gas, and food industries)   …

DNA printing and Artificial gene synthesis

Artificial gene synthesis, or gene synthesis, refers to a group of methods that are used in synthetic biology to construct and assemble genes from nucleotides de novo. Unlike DNA synthesis in living cells, artificial gene synthesis does not require template DNA, allowing virtually any DNA sequence to be synthesized in …
